I start by saying this: ” I am absolutely positive God has something awesome planned for my life.” However, you can be certain, that just as God has something great and mighty in store, Satan has his schemes, in trying to keep it from coming to pass. The Bible tells us in 1 Peter 5:8 NLT, “Be careful! Watch out for the attacks from the Devil our enemy. He prowls about like a roaring lion, looking for some victim to devour. His purpose is ‘to steal and to kill and destroy…’ (John 10:10 NLT) ME!
I was rejected by 2 years of age, sexually abused more than once by different people, both times at 7 years old. Deceived out of my innocence at 14; raped when I was 15; heavy into alcohol and drugs by 16; in an extremely destructive and abusive relationship by 17 and thinking of suicide; married at 18; a mother by 19; and beaten, broken and divorced by 20. I was searching for significance in all the wrong places.
Finally at age 23, I quit running from God and finally crawled to Him. God has promised me, that HE will turn all my shame into victory. My part, is to be obedient, to be His spokesman to the world. Nobody, but God, through his precious Son Jesus, could have given me what I needed, to be restored and made whole. Nobody on earth could or ever can love me like He loves me. Nobody is willing to give their only begotten Son, for a cracked pot, but God! And I’m so glad he did!
